Abstract
The study of architecture is by nature highly interdisciplinary. Design, structure, technology, ecology and economics must all be considered in the process of planning and building. Therefore it is important to encourage an integrated approach in terms of education and to create a interdisciplinary network of learning contents. Wissensraum Architektur is a contribution to this idea. Wissensraum Architektur is an internet-based system for teaching and learning at the Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering at Anhalt University of Applied Sciences in Dessau. The basis of Wissensraum is a pool of media elements and multimedia based components to which authors from different fields contribute. The authoring system allows instructors to create, by simple means, digital learning modules. Due to the modular structure, modular elements and sequences in varying relations and by different authors can be reused and restructured. A knowledge map visualizes relationships among the different learning content. In this way, a virtual campus in Dessau is created step by step. The didactical concept of Wissensraum supports Constructivist models of learning. Users can use the database for research and can create their own way of learning concerning particular themes. The availability via Internet makes it possible to work from any location at any time.
